The industry development agreement has been negotiated and signed by Inven2, one of Norway´s largest technology transfer office, on behalf of the scientists and clinicians at Oslo University Hospital and University of Oslo.
The collaboration has resulted in a prototype of a tailor-made syringe optimised for eye injections. The syringe and needle safely deliver a small dose of medicine into the eye. In particular, as silicone oil deposition in the eye is a known side effect of many syringes currently in use, the novel syringe is silicone oil-free.
A prototype of the syringe has been produced, and researchers at The Laboratory of Adaptive Immunity and Homeostasis are currently documenting that the syringe possesses optimal features for storage and shelf-life with and without anti-VEGF inhibitors. When the syringe is documented safe and effective, it will be put in production.
Head of The Laboratory of Adaptive Immunity and Homeostasis at Oslo University Hospital and University of Oslo, Jan Terje Andersen, commented,
“We are very excited to be part of this industry collaboration with SJJ Solutions together with Morten Moe, Magne Sivertsen, Øystein Jørstad and the rest of their colleagues at the Department of Ophthalmology. It is great that our in-depth research and knowledge about antibodies can provide this much needed product with the required quality measures and documentation.”
